Jamieson’s Of Shetland Bauble Appeal Gathers Pace

I was hoping to get something posted about this while I was at the Loch Ness Knit Fest(more on that later), however I simply never had chance and internet at the same time.

Many of you will have heard through Jamieson’s of Shetland social media accounts that they’re appealing for knitted baubles for their seasonal window display, they always come up with something eyecatching for their shop front. This one promises to be just as special, and one you can all be a part of. They’re appealing for knitters of the world to send knitted baubles which they’ll craft their masterpiece with, and in January they’ll hand them over to us to sell in aid of the Scanner appeal. We think it’s an idea that truly captures the spirit of Christmas and if the likes and shares are anything to go by, so do many others.

Likes and shares however do not a window make, so it’s important these lovely baubles get made and sent too. Who makes just one bauble anyway? They’re perfect for using up all your spare yarns that aren’t much use for anything else 😉.

I’m including a copy of their Facebook post below because it includes a free pattern you can use for shaping. Please do send in as many as you can. Who knows, if they get too many for their window we might even be able to start selling any duplicates before January for anyone who wants to add a little MRI Christmas to their tree this year!

🎄🎄Would you like to knit or crochet us a Christmas Bauble?? Would you like to be part of our Christmas Window while helping the @mrimaakers appeal? We are looking for kind donations of knitted Christmas baubles to put in our festive windows over November & December. In January we will hand them over to the @mrimaakers to sell online. We are looking for as many different designs and creations of baubles from as many different places as possible. We’d love to receive baubles by mid November so there isn’t much time!! All baubles to be sent to our shop; Jamieson’s of Shetland, Commercial St, Lerwick. Please repost, share and tweet. Thank you! 🎄🎄#jamiesonsofshetland
